First make sure your taxi driver understands where he is going or you might be late. Petrol station near the airport had plenty of people there that were able to explain to our driver where to go. The first part of the tour is very informative but may be a bit long winded for very young kids. My 12 year... More

The best place to see the National Bird, prey bird and brave birds. Which help to find food in the desert for the Bedouin. Good Job by the Govt to take care of the Falcon, Peregrine.. Howard,

It's worth visiting here if you live around or visit Abu Dhabi. The guide who showed us around was excellent and really made the tour. It's great seeing the Falcons and how they're cared for in this place. I actually leave my cat here in the cattery when I travel and am still pleasantly surprised to see how much the... More

We visited the hospital with two children aged 11 years of age. We all loved the experience. The tour was informative and well paced. It contained enough changes of topics and experiences to keep all participants engaged and interested. Make sure the taxi driver knows exactly how to navigate to the hospital as one wrong turn can be problematic, hence... More

After a bit of an introduction we went into the hospital itself where all the falcons (hooded) were sitting calmly on their perches. The staff explained how sheiks would drop their birds in for a nail clip, repair... More

Falconry in Arabia goes back more than 2,000 years. The Peregrine Falcon is a symbol of the Bedouin culture of UAE. The bird was traditionally used for hunting and it was a source of survival in the desert. Bedouins used the bird to supplement their diets, catching the Habara, which is a wild bird, very similar to a wild turkey,... More
